He took part in this humorous 1966 interview..

Starts like this:

DJ: ... Around the, uh, table we’ll go, meet first Pigpen. What a horrible name.

Pigpen: Not my fault, Jerry gave it to me.

DJ: What’s your real name?

Pigpen: Ron.

DJ: Ron? Uh, your fan club yesterday or something was telling me you’re 21 years old...

Pigpen: Um-hm.

DJ: You look like 38... what happened, I know.

Pigpen: Umm... couldn’t tell ya.

Oh yes, thanks. Not much of an "interview" really, but I guess as good as we can expect from 1966!
